Some of the top current and former female golfers in the world, including Cristie Kerr, Paula Creamer, Morgan Pressel and Annika Sorenstam, have expressed serious reservations over the LPGA’s decision to stage an official tournament event in which the entire purse will be “imaginary.”
(Michelle Wie, Morgan Pressel may skip ill-conceived tournament)
Randall Mell of The Golf Channel - via Geoff Shackelford - reported this week the details of the inaugural RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup, which was created by new LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan “to honor the pioneers who founded the tour and to fund the LPGA-USGA Girls’ Golf Foundation.

On of the web’s top golf bloggers Stephanie Wei has a fun video from last weekend’s LPGA Evian Masters in France.

TEENIE’S COMING OUT PARTY; CARMEN REMAINS IN CLOSET: Congrats to 18-year-old Morgan “Body By McNuggets” Pressel, who claimed her first LPGA Tour victory yesterday at the Nabisco Dinah Shore Classic.
Pressel was probably a little tender for the tastes of the legions of lesbians who descended on Palm Springs for the same weekend, but Carmen Electra is a different story.
Our Book Of Scrap notes that she was due to make a “big announcement” during her visit to The Dinah festivities last weekend (presumably to announce she is a lesbian and dating Joan Jett).
But thankfully for the sake of prospective male, tatted-out D-listers, she has since announced she’s still holed up in the House of Hetero. But I’m wondering if the above promo girls, who were stationed at The Dinah throughout the weekend, made Electra a little more than bi-curious.
